Thanks to advances in international communication and travel, it has never been easier to connect with the rest of the world. As philosophers debate the consequences of globalization, cosmopolitanism promises to create a stronger global community. Cosmopolitanism in the Age of Globalization examines this philosophy from numerous perspectives to offer a comprehensive evaluation of its theory and practice. Bringing together the works of political scientists, philosophers, historians, and economists, the work applies an interdisciplinary approach to the study of cosmopolitanism that illuminates its long and varied history. This diverse framework provides a thoughtful analysis of the claims of cosmopolitanism and introduces many overlooked theorists and ideas. This volume is a timely addition to sociopolitical theory, exploring the philosophical consequences of cosmopolitanism in today's global interactions.

Twentieth-century history was dominated by the State - nationalism, national economies, national wars. Professor Nigel Harris argues that such a global structure is unthinkable in the twenty-first century. Why?_x000D_ _x000D_ As the world opens up through structural adjustment to a single global economy, and barriers between countries crumble, so the powers of nations, nationalisms and the State have begun to dissolve. Perhaps nowhere is this more potent than in the world of economics._x000D_ _x000D_ Cities, not states, are the treasuries of the western world. They are bound neither by allegiances, nor, for the most part, by geography. They are, in this sense, exemplars of that most publicised but least understood of issues: globalization. Harris seeks to understand the vital relationship between our emerging world economy and our emerging political institutions. In part, here is a history of the play-off between capital, the individual and the State in the modern age, but it is also, and more importantly, a detailed analysis of the factors that dictate the current trend towards globalization, as well as the directions and effects that this process will have on our world. Harris argues that the notion of national capital, so important in the mid and later 20th Century, is becoming redundant as cities and their citizens, increasingly unaffected by borders and national boundaries, take centre stage in the economic world. Harris deconstructs this phenomenon, carefully explaining its development, and the direction it is taking. He argues for the immense benefits it could, and should have not just for western wealth, but for economics worldwide, for international communication, and for global democracy._x000D_ _x000D_ _x000D_ "This is a very good book. It is innovative, it argues an original thesis and it is well-written. Nigel Harris is always innovative and provocative - this book keeps up to his high standards."_x000D_ Professor Lord Desai, London School of Economics.

Democracy As Human Rights

Is global democracy possible? The most prominent institutional manifestations of this concept-the UN, WTO, IMF and World Bank-have been skewered as cloistered anti-democratic institutions by anti-globalization activists. Meanwhile, proponents of globalization advocate reforming these institutions to make them more transparent. Michael Goodhart argues that both views fail to recognize the complex link between modern democracy and the sovereign state and the degree to which globalization challenges the modern conceptualization of democracy. Original and historically informed, Democracy as Human Rights provides a carefully argued theory of democracy in which traditional representative government is supported by global institutions designed to guarantee fundamental human rights.
